How so? Inquiring minds and all that. If you have some specific comparisons that would be great.

Woah - that’s a solid trifecta you got there!

I'd be really curious to read a review/comparison of your LDV and the Peg Marcelo you had last fall. Actually a comparison of the Marcelo to all of the other steel bikes you've had. Since the Marcelo is such a grail bike, I'm curious to know how it actually felt compared to other bikes in a similar size and with similar components.

Thanks.

PS. you could probably write a book on your last year's experience trying out so many bikes...

Coffee ride before the rain.

Mr. Marcelo arrives back home shortly, so tv_vt, you’ll get your comparo in a bit...

little does the woman in the coffee shop know a bunch of bike geeks are looking at a bike photo that she also happened to be a part of.

psst: cut a spacer or two off!

It was a stealth photo take..

As for the spacers...I may instead try a -20 Fizik stem on there so I can put one navy above/below. Or I might just do that with the Deda stem. Fit vs. form, ergonomics vs. aesthetics. I'm a slave to fashion, what can I say?

The Deda stem is right for aesthetics, the angle matches the TT nicely. It would look better as is than putting a funky stem angle on there and getting a tepee effect.

That's why I haven't done the more negative rise one so far...
